adding stitches
Well I am happy to see this entry because that is what I am up too also but how so you get back to the amount of stitches that you started with?

You might be able to decrease stitches, not all in one spot or row. Spread them out along a couple rows.

So you aren't suppose to have extra stitches appear if you started with say 35? So I should probably end this square and start on a new one? This is my first attempt at knitting. It just keeps getting wider and wider and won't fit on my size 8 needles any more.

Normally no, you shouldn't end up with more stitches. Some patterns do increase stitches and then decrease on the next row or two. If you're just knitting a square and practicing you're probably doing accidental yarn overs or not taking the stitch all the way off the needle so it leaves two loops.

You can keep going and look at all the tips as to why you're getting extra sts. Maybe decrease some stitches back to the 35, then see if you can keep from adding any. If you were to just start over, the same thing will happen if you don't figure out why and how not to do it.

Thanks y'all for the help. I went ahead and ended the one I was working on and started a new one. I am paying closer attention to every stitch now. I think I was one of the knitters that was so excited that I was doing it, that I forgot to keep a closer count to the stitches and make sure I wasn't putting the needle through the wrong hole. Thanks again!

ok so now i'm making this cloth http://www.knittingknonsense.com/tennesseecloth.html and all of a sudden when doing my first pearl, an extra stitch appeared with it. i dont get this. i want to work on this cloth so bad but its hard when i get stuck like this. it looks like the yarn is twisted with the extra loop but i put the needle through the correct loop in the first place. ugh!

ok so that is weird. the next row in the pattern requires knitting all the way and when i got to the messed up stitches from the first pearl, i stitched together the first two places twisted together and let the 3rd twist off the needle to fall into the pattern and now i have 37 stitches again. weird and i dont even know how it happend

help
now i'm getting holes in the spots that i let the extra loop go free. i've given up on my knitting this cloth for a few days. how do i fix it when i go from knit to pearl to knit. i end up with an extra loops or two where these different stitches connect. when its time to knit the whole next row these extra stitches mess me up and create the holes. how do i fix this? im getting frustrated!
